    1. "A tragedy of Shakespearean proportions."Detective Tracy Crosswhite is called upon to unravel the tangled complications of a 40 year old crime that sits in the dust pile of cold cases. Her friend, Jenny, an academy classmate, wants Tracy to bring to light the details of Jenny's detective father's case after his death. Tracy doesn't have much to go on here in Klickitat County, Washington. A Native American high school girl, Kimi Kanasket, was found in the cold, raging river nearby in 1976. Kimi h [...]

    2. I'm really liking Detective Tracy Crosswhite. Granted I have only read the first one and now the third one but I'm going to backtrack to the second one and go on from there as they come out. In this book we are in the present and in the past in 1976. In the year of 1976 we are reading about deputy Buzz Almond trying to figure out what happened to Kimi Kanasket. In the current year of 2016 Tracy is asked by Buzz daughter Jenny, whom she knows from working together, to help with the cold case. Tra [...]

    3. The Hook - I feel privileged to have been granted access to Robert Dugoni’s fourth Tracy Crosswhite novel, The Trapped Girl. Wanting to read them in order, I was happy the third made its way back to our library. The Line - ”You must be a magnet for murders”, her sergeant, Billy Williams said.The Sinker - ”Seemed every time Tracy and her partner, Kinsington Rowe, were the homicide team on call, someone got killed.”Another murder to solve, just another day in the homicide department. Of [...]

    4. For 40 years Kimi Kanakset's death was labelled suicide. But when her father dies, Jenny discovers amongst his possessions the original file on the case. A file classed in the system as having been destroyed.Jenny asks her friend and police academy classmate Tracy Crosswhite for help as what she has read has perturbed her. After reading the file Tracy agrees and sets about uncovering a long buried truth.This is my first Robert Dugoni. I found the plot interesting, but not gripping in an 'omg I j [...]

    5. IN THE CLEARING by Robert Dugoni is Book 3 in the Tracy Crosswhite detective series. Having already read book 1, My Sister’s Grave and book 2, Her Final Breath and really enjoying them, when I was approved on NetGalley for the 3rd book in the series, In The Clearing, I was very pleased.In this third book of the Tracy Crosswhite series, Tracy is called in to Seattle to investigate a domestic incident, the shooting and murder of a man by his estranged wife. But was it really a situation of self- [...]

    6. 4.5 stars!Another wonderful book in the Tracy Crosswhite series! I love reading this series because I know the neighborhoods and businesses Robert Dugoni is writing about. It's like I’m riding shotgun while Tracy drives all around my city. I’ve come to realize that it’s enjoyable to read a book set in your city or state.In the Clearing is the third book in the series and consists of two cases. A 1976 cold case over in Klickitat County, Washington of a Native American teenager who commits s [...]

    7. As in My Sister's Grave, Dugoni gives us yet another reason why it is deadly to grow up in small town America. Corruption, murder, racism, suicide, and more corruption. If the thriller/crime procedural genre is to be believed, these country towns are about as dangerous as Midsommer.In any case, this series gets better and better. More intricately plotted than the first two (which I loved), this instalment escaped the 'it's all about Tracy' theme that I worried would take over the series. Instead [...]

    8. This book was flat out fantastic! I was riveted. Tracy Crosswhite is a great character, and I've liked her in all three books in the series. I like how she and Dan both understand the nature of their work vs. personal lives. I think Dan will figure more in future books.One of the things that makes this book so good is the in depth forensics and investigation of a very cold case. The facts were well laid out, both in 1976 and current day. The case involved a young woman whose death was ruled a su [...]

    9. an ARC kindly provided by the publisher Thomas & Mercer Via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Full review to come.

    10. Detective Tracy Crosswhite is asked by Jenny, a former police academy classmate, to investigate a cold case that her father worked on forty years before. A young Native American high school girl was found in a river and it was ruled a suicide, but Jenny's father Buzz never believed it to be so. Tracy agrees to take on the case and it seems that Buzz was on to something and that there are people who want the truth to stay buriedIn the Clearing is the third and latest book in the Tracy Crosswhite [...]

    11. Robert Dugoni brings back Tracy Crosswhite to help solve a case that has been cold for 40 years.A former police academy classmate and friend, Jenny, reaches out to Tracy to help solve the possible murder of a Native American high school student. It was officially ruled as suicide. Jenny's dad was a new deputy when he investigated. When he passed away, Jenny found the file locked away in his desk. And she would like Tracy to take a look Jenny would like closure for her father d for the girl's fa [...]

    12. When I read the author's first book in the series featuring detective Tracy Crosswhite - My Sister's Grave - I absolutely loved it and vowed to read the second (Her Final Breath). Alas, that one somehow got lost in my ever-growing list of to-read books, which I'm still hoping to rectify as soon as possible; so when I was offered the opportunity to read this one, the third in the series, I jumped on it (thank you to the author and publisher, via NetGalley, for providing me with a copy in exchange [...]

    13. The third in this series about a female homicide detective in Seattle. I have read these books in order and I can say they are all excellent novels and if anything, are getting better as Robert Dugoni becomes more at ease with his well-drawn characters.There are cold cases which previous stories have shown Detective Tracy Crosswhite has a skill in re-visiting and there are others in cryogenic stasis. When her friend asks her to take a fresh look at the first investigation her Dad had in his care [...]

    14. This is the third book in the Tracy Crosswhite series which is definitely a must read for all police procedural mystery lovers Tracy's sister Sarah disappeared when she was a teen which haunted and shaped Tracy’s future. So when her friend Jenny asks her to investigate a 40 year cold case mysterious suicide of a teenager Tracy jumps right in. Meanwhile back in Seattle her team is investigating a domestic shooting where the mom and son have both confessed to killing the victim. Robert Dugouni w [...]

    15. I am really enjoying the Seattle setting of this series, and Dugoni has drawn some sympathetic characters in the main story of the mysterious decades-old death of Kimi Kanasket.The current-day subplot felt a little tacked-on, though it certainly has some twists of its own.This is an interesting book and I recommend it to all who like Dugoni's books, Seattle/West Coast settings, or mysteries generally.

    16. I am not sure why I waited so long to read this book after reading Her Final Breath. With each installment the series grows stronger. There are two different cases ongoing in this latest offering. The first follows Tracy as she investigates a cold case using her accumulated vacation days to investigate unofficially. Use it or lose it. The second case allows the members of her squad to take the spotlight and show that they have skills too.Jenny Almond, a friend and former classmate from the acade [...]

    17. The most predicable of the books yet - it is still a very good book, a good story. Yet, I found it less interesting than the first two books. Let's hope book 4 will be back to the first books standards!

    18. 40 years ago, the death of Kimi Kanasket, a Native American girl about to start college, was deemed a suicide. But her family and Deputy Sheriff Buzz Almond had doubts. When Buzz's daughter, Sheriff Jenny Almond, asks Tracy to look into this cold case with a fresh perspective, Tracy is reminded of her sister's disappearance and the pain of not knowing what happened that affected her family so deeply. At the same time, Tracy's team back in Seattle deal with an investigation into the shooting of a [...]

    19. 3.5 stars, maybe 4. Two cases, one present and active and one past and closed. The latter gets reopened by Crosswhite as a favor to a friend. Although that case was ruled a suicide, the friend's father, who worked on the case, was never satisfied with that resolution. At the same time that Crosswhite is working that case, she and her partner are working a present day case that appears simple at first but quickly gets complicated.The two cases don't have much in common but it was fascinating watc [...]

    20. Wow this is a great mystery series!The 3rd novel in the Tracy Crosswhite series focuses on 2 murder cases. The first one is a cold case from 1976. Tracy's friend's father has recently died and was the sheriff of a small town. He couldn't solve a case from 1976 that involves a senior year girl who disappeared one night after work and was found in a river. The case was ruled a suicide and was closed. Tracy is looking into the case for her friend and believes the young girl didn't commit suicide. T [...]

    21. A special thank you to Thomas & Mercer and NetGalley for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.Robert Dugoni returns following (2015)Her Final Breath, with the third riveting installment of Tracy Crosswhite, IN THE CLEARINGa cold case of 40 years with some dark secrets of the past. Set in Seattle,Washington Detective Tracy Crosswhite, finds herself in another adventure—from 1976 to 2016. Klickitat County Sheriff Jenny Almond (friend from the academy), asks Tracy to take a look at a file [...]

    22. Robert Dugoni has formulated a plot that involves an old case with a questionable outcome, a current case that should be “an easy grounder,” and Seattle Detective Tracy Crosswhite is in the middle of each. Robert Dugoni’s third Tracy Crosswhite novel, In the Clearing, has Tracy and her team – Kins, Faz, and a couple others – are called upon to handle an apparent clear-cut murder of a man by his estranged wife. Self-defense, she claims. But things are not as they appear, or are they? Th [...]

    23. Another great installment in the Tracy Crosswhite series. This is the third book in the series but I think you can read them as stand-alones. In this book, there are two mysteries going. One that is present and one that is a cold-case from 40 years ago. The cold-case is the more prominent story that is featured, though. I really like Robert Dugoni's writing. He's able to keep you guessing and wanting to turn the pages to see if you were right. I especially like Tracy as a character, which keeps [...]

    24. First and foremost, a large thank you to NetGalley, Robert Dugoni, and Thomas & Mercer for providing me with a copy of this book, which allows me to provide you with this review.Dugoni returns with the third novel in the Crosswhite series, taking a different spin from the previous series writing. While the team lands a homicide with a strong self-defence component, Detective Tracy Crosswhite finds herself lured to assist a friend who has been given a cold case by her late father. In the autu [...]

    25. This is the third book in the Tracy Crosswhite series. It had Tracy and her partner Kins trying to solve a murder mystery as well as Tracy being contacted by a friend to look into a crime from 40 years ago. The time frame alternated between the present and the past which I liked. I was totally engrossed in the crime from the 1970s. To me, the present crime and intereactions with those characters felt underdevelop and like an afterthought. Also, Tracy's interactions with her partner and her bf se [...]

    26. In this 3rd installment of the Tracy books, I feel that Mr. Dugoni has tried to educate his readers more on the procedures that go into solving crimes - past and present. I liked that - I enjoy learning new things and found some of the forensics fascinating. Don't get me wrong, you are not bombarded in any way, just informed.Also, in this one, there was less nail-biting intensity. The story has a good flow (of course) through both timelines and both cases do have their share of drama. Enough of [...]

    27. Seattle based Detective Tracy Crosswhite is strong, passionate, and determined to discover the truth in her search for justice. Here, she works on two cases, a 40 year old cold case and one in the present day. In the present, a murdered man, has the wife and son confess to the killing. However, the forensics do not tally. The cold case relates to the suicide of a young Native American girl, the sheriff was less than happy with the suicide ruling and continued to work the case until his death. Hi [...]

    28. In the Clearing is the third book in a series featuring Seattle Violet Crimes Detective Tracy Crosswhite. When she attends academy classmate Jenny Almond’s father's funeral, Jenny asks her to take a second look at a case that her father had been hanging onto for over forty years. Buzz Almond was a new detective when he investigated the apparent suicide of 17 year old Kimi Kanasket on the night of a legendary 1976 football game. As Tracy begins to work her way through the old records she notice [...]

    29. Detective Tracey Crosswhite is asked by a former colleague Jenny to look at a cold case that her father had been working on before his death. Even though the story is quite good, this to me was not one of Dugoni's better works. It did not seem to have the same depth of tension and excitement as his other books and I have to say I was a little disappointed in this one.

    30. In this third book of the Detective Tracy Crosswhite series. Tracy is asked to investigate a cold case by Jenny, a former police academy classmate whose Father was involved in the case 40yrs ago.A young high school girl had been found facedown in a river. Her death had been logged as a suicide but Jenny's Father did not believe this to be the case.Tracy decides to take on the case and thinks Jenny's Father was right and there is evidence that someone wants to stay buried.I would like to thank Ne [...]
